Indigenous Australian Engineering Summer School 13-19 January 2013
The Indigenous Australian Engineering Summer School (IAESS), now in its 16th year, is an annual event established by Engineering Aid Australia. It provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from around Australia with the opportunity to experience engineering studies and careers.
In January 2012, the University of Sydney hosted the IAESS. Open to 20 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students entering Years 11 and 12, the five-day live-in summer school gave these students a taste of engineering as a university course and career. It involved hands-on and challenging activities within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies as well as site visits to engineering companies.
Studying engineering helps you develop excellent problem-solving, design and research skills that will allow you to drive and lead innovation that will help shape our future.
If you are good at maths and science, like working with machinery or practical tools and enjoy tackling challenging problems, then engineering maybe just what you're looking for.
